    Germans already work fewer hours a year than almost any other country. They are very productive, in part because they train their youth in the industrial arts, not pretending that everybody is college material. If you consider leisure a consumer good they have a higher standard of living than we do.

    Their debt to GDP ratio is high. Depending on how you calculate it, it is between 80% and 140%. Where are they getting the money to do this? They don’t run surpluses. They are like the broke U.S. They run deficits.
